Firefighters say Mace may have caused the heavy fumes at an L.A. Fitness Center on Tuesday night that made dozens of people feel ill and sent eight to the hospital with minor injuries. Fire Department Operations Chief Ed Lazar said Mace probably was released near the front door, where the odor was strongest, and spread through the air conditioning system and entrance. The fitness center was closed and 200 people were evacuated. It reopened at 4:30 a.m.
